Special, ain't he, October?


It's interesting how the word "special" can have many meanings.
But, yeah.

It's the unfocused, purposeless malice that I don't understand.
It's a conversation killer--but that may have actually been the point.


You still here? Unfocused? Its your guts I dislike, not others.

Talking of "woke", do corporations like Disney force that drivel on Islamic countries? Somehow I don't think so.

No, they censor their films and advertising for Asia, China and Russia audiences which makes their so called social crusade all the more a farce.

Yup. "Celebrating diversity"...so long as it doesn't impact the bottom line.

Anyone who wants to know the difference between a "real" movie and whatever Hollywood is doing nowadays should go see Godzilla Minus One.

That episode of MARRIED WITH CHILDREN was shown here on German TV back then.
Might have been cut a little bit but I don't think so.

Loved the many guest stars like Tracy Lords in that private eye episode.

Not surprised. Europe isn't as prudish.

A&C does not usually require content.
But in this case, he was commenting on the political content of this thread, and I teased him on his use of profanity.
It seems that was all it took to trigger his trolling and abuse.
I expect he will continue his witty ripostes as soon as he sees this.
"When you can't attack the argument..."

No surprise. The vast majority of virtue signaling is performative.

I was not a huge enthusiast of "Married With Children".
I wasn't bothered by the accusations of sexism and misogyny, because I already knew that a large portion of the writers and production staff were women.
I guess at the time I just felt the jokes were too easy.
But anyway, one episode I just loved was the Xmas 2-parter with Sam Kinison as Al's guardian angel.
I took the trouble to buy that one and I pop it in from time to time.
Loved Kinison.

Yeah, I thought the jokes were to cheap. I never really watched the show, not my cup of tea.
Though I did come across one episodes where Al Bundy was visited by (space) aliens and it was hilarious!

What exactly are you boys arguing about? I don't see any content here.

Hello there. I only just saw your post. I was merely pointing out, for the umpteenth time may I add, that if I wanted a political lecture there are any number of places to seek out such content. The FSM site is at its best when it focuses on music, film, entertainment... etc, not Maoist struggle sessions. Some members - always the same ones - can never refrain from making boring, predictable, political statements, insisting on foisting their boring, predictable viewpoints on the world.

I will refrain from defining the other fellow or taking cheap potshots at him as I am quite confident that you needn't be shepherded in one direction or another to make up your own mind.
